Who Is Smarter — Millennials or Baby Boomers?
One of Veronica Barajas’s students at Zachry Middle School is conducting a year-long study looking into the question of whether Millennials or Baby Boomers are smarter. She invited Betsy Hill via Nepris to engage in a discussion with two students working on the topic. Ms. Barajas particularly hoped that the session would help make students aware of questions they had not even thought to ask yet.
In the 30-minute session, Ms. Hill and the student discussed such questions as:
- What are the generations?
- What do we mean by “smarter?”
- At the same age or right this minute?
- We can all get smarter
At the end of the session, the students asked a most provocative and thoughtful question: Why are there generations?
